The FMM could be called “Deep Tissue 2.0”

|Deep Tissue||Functional Muscle Manipulation|
|“Knots”: either scar tissue or hardened muscle caused by physical trauma and “wear and tear”.||“Muscle Spasms”: well-functioning muscles commanded by the sympathetic N.S. to stay contracted. A misguided defense mechanism.|
|“Break” knots or try to soften up the hardened “material” by force.||Negotiate with the sympathetic N.S. to release the muscles.|
|Depending on amount of pressure either hurts a lot or doesn’t go deep.||Pressure constantly adjusting. Dialog with the body. The body opens up and allows much deeper work. |
|Patient struggles to survive the intrusion and involuntarily fight back.||Patient becomes physically aware and find that they can consciously release those spasmed muscles.|
|Poor results, dependency on long term therapy. “Never enough”||Chronic problems related to involuntary contraction and nerve irritation (headaches, migraines, sciatica, tennis elbow etc) are solved completely, therapy ends and results last.|
|Results last a couple days, during which there is also local pain.|| Patient becomes aware of their body’s reaction to challenges as it happens. They learn to override that reaction and release the tension by themselves.|
Results can last for years.
